It's that time of the week again my lovelies, when we must say our farewells for the weekend. If you're lucky, your weekend will include a little hot chocolate, maybe some holiday prep, a candy cane or two... and it you're really lucky it might just center around a pretty, winter wedding (consider us jealous). Before we sign off for the week though, we have some exciting news to share with our favorite people - The Little Black Book Blog is now on Facebook! We have another source to share our favorite LBBers work - and we're super excited. So while you're stirring your hot chocolate with your candy canes, make sure to save a little time for the LBB on Facebook. And then meet us back here Monday morning for more, more, more fab soirees. xoxo

Brides + Grooms to be – Don’t forget about our LBB! This week’s Don’t Miss List spotlights our Little Black Book VIPs who take the stress out of planning your big day. In between saying “Yes!” and exchanging “I do’s,” plan to perfect your soiree with the professionals WE couldn’t live without.
If the venue is top of your list, you absolutely MUST stop by our Little Black Book before hitting the pavement. We’ve got some of the most beautiful venues in the world, like Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Boston Marriott Long Wharf, and SO many other great ones, at your beck and call!
Once you’ve found your locale, you’re going to need someone to help coordinate the rest with you, which is why you should definitely turn to our Little Black Book. We’ve got names like Simply Divine Events just waiting to plan your party! Then, of course, there’s the stationery – and we’ve got you covered there too! Gourmet Invitations, posh paperie, Laura Hooper Calligraphy, Paper Damsels, Wiley Valentine, and Angela Welch Pen and Pauper are all top notch.
When it comes to making those memories last, we have got the best in the business capturing your weddings. If you’re looking at our photography section, you’re going to see names like Eric Laurits, Tinywater Photography, XOANDREA, Carla Ten Eyck, davina + daniel, efeunodos Fotografia, James Christianson Photographer, Jeffrey and Julia Woods ~ Photographers, Jen Rodriguez, and Jenna Walker Photographers. And in the cinematography section? PenWeddings and StarFruit Productions are just some of the phenom talent you’re going to find. Definitely don't forget about photo booths - Sweet Booths and We Love Photobooths (among others) are hanging out in our LBB with some other totally unique pros for your day... like NewlyWish for your registry and CW Designs for your custom mapping needs!
